Description

This is a well-executed 1893 city plan of Boston and environs, produced by local map publisher George H. Walker. The large size (over 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall) allows for exceptional detail and would make for an impressive display piece if framed and hung on a wall. Various individual buildings and businesses have been mapped, from marine hospitals and navy yards, to prisons, railroads, schools, playgrounds, gas and ferry companies, and more.
